Gobbles and Zzzs

by Jon Petruschke

Here are five of my favorite dream haiku from over the last several months. I’m offering them up to you again in celebration of Thanksgiving and to express gratitude for reading my weird, little poems each day. I’m also posting them to participate in the WordPress Weekly Writing Challenge: Haiku Catchoo! You can find out more about the challenge at:   http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/11/25/challenge-haiku/  Enjoy!

I sleep beside the
blunt white, in the gummy groove
of the hippo’s mouth.

Jogging through empty
vacation town, past all their
abandoned leisure.

Hold heavy bucket
of parasites until I
become one with it.

Pink ducklings with eyes
of M&Ms, they see me
as one of their own.

We learn Darth Vader’s
sexual appetite; this
Star Wars is horror.
